SumitOfficial’s 61 (Blog Posts) Reasons to be grateful for 2016

So yeah, it is the last week of the year. And I am very excited for it, not just because it was not a good year for me or something but this year has given me a lot of things for which I am grateful from the bottom of my heart.

But the irony is I see people on Social Media where they are cursing and abusing 2016. I mean really, is that required. No matter how bad a someone might have gone through, life always gives us tons of reasons to be happy and to be grateful for.

Amateur authors who got their book published, students who’ve passed with excellent marks, women who got married with their choice of men, and I have hundreds of example of people who have everything to be happy and thankful to the Universe. But all I could hear and see them abusing the year and their life.

This made me think of my journey with my year 2016, how grateful I am for each and everything I have done in this year. Of course, it is not possible always to happen what you want, instead, at times, things happen what is good for you and not what you have asked for. We can be and should be happy in both the cases. NO?

Because as they say,

If something good happens it is a BLESSING for you if it does not then surely a LEARNING for you.

Likewise, I am thankful to those who were cursing life and this year which gave me the idea of being grateful for it and try to remember what all good and not-so-good things happened with me.

I am going to share only those memories which I have shared with you through the year on SumitOfficial’s Blog 

(Note: Simultaneously I’m sharing a few of my pics in between the months and posts😁 it doesn’t mean they belong to that post. All are individual😍😂)


1.) Life’s Playing Grown Up!

This phase of my life taught me a big lesson which I might remember fir the rest of my life. At times, things happen to tell you something, if you are smart enough to learn from it. You live the life to its fullest.

2.) Another Great Opportunity(Part I)

In this post, I was sent to Bhopal for the Education Ministry Meeting from my Institute where Professors, doctors, PhD holders, and principals were sitting and it was a blissful moment for me when one of my suggestions on Entrepreneurship and start-ups came on top 3 best ideas from Madhya Pradesh.

3.) A Wayfare to Bhopal(Part II)

Along with me in the meeting, Divyani, one of my best friends, we roamed around the city. Best friends does not mean you avoid fighting with the other person instead, you balance the argument by giving a  chocolate to a girl. LOL!

So as you see there were many ups and downs but I still feel blessed to that this year has taught me everything.

You know what puts cherry on the cake?

Okay. I’ll tell you. So there is a girl I really admire her because of her cute smile with her half closed eyes. She is from Indore only but I never got any chance to meet her.Also she is a traveler, and have been traveling in India and outside of India for many years. She has 46K+ Followers on Instagram.

Whenever I used to see her, all I could wish was to see her in reality. God must have listened to my prayer. When I reach this morning to my college for some work, I see a girl walking down to her car. I, immediately tell one of my friends that she is Simran. Simran Bhatia. Youtuber and Blogger.
My friend was astonished to hear that. But at the same time I did not even see her face, I just saw her from her back. I opened my Instagram and showed him.

Hahaha! After sometime all I wanted to meet her. I thanked God for this last gift of 2016. I went towards her, we shook hands. Talked. Man!! She is damn cute. Even beautiful that I imagined, and at the same time very genuine and grounded girl.

And the most important thing was she had taken admission to my college, where I am pursuing my MBA. When I asked, she uttered that she is just pursuing her BBA Final year! Oh my God! What a coincidence it is! I am her senior now. Haha! Jokes apart I really feel so good when I see people like her, full of life. Crazy.

We have taken a selfie too. So as we see when life gives you lemon just make a lemonade of it.

So now I just want to thank you all for being a great reader.Yes! GREAT READER. And I mean it. If you would not have been there to read I would not have been writing this much.

Also I want to thank all my stars, my well wishers, my parents, relatives, and the entire Universe for all being there for me. Thank you 2016 for everything. I welcome 2017 with all my heart and soul to be a great year for all of us. 🙂

Thank you! 🙂

  4. You totally stood by your words when you said it’s going to be your longest post. And yes the point of unable to resist to read till the end, you stood by that too.😉
    Honestly, I didn’t read all the links associated with each point but will do in next few days. It’s been a while that we have become acquainted, and with that I’ve to known that you are an extremely confident person who is always ready to party (quite contrary to me😁). Also, a huge fan of Ranveer so undoubtedly overflowing bundle of energy – it has to be you.😄
    I still remember the first time you commented on my blog post. Being a newbie a comment would make me jump off my seats at that time (now too😁), and your comment did that to me. It felt really good. So thanks for becoming my reader.😊
    I hope 2017 goes much better for you and turns many of your dreams into realities.☺ Happy 2017 Sumit.🎉🎆😍
